thanks Chanu,

Royal Enfiled Bikes are very very photogenic, so its really difficult to take bad photos of them.

There are more photos from various trips on my flickr and picasa pages. Do visit if u have time. the url is as follows:

Hey Nasirkaka... thats a beautiful bike! And awesomely clicked... Congrats!

Just couldn't help noticing one thing, your crashguard. While these are the most commonly used crash guards in India, they actually are a potential source of danger. In case of a crash, the ends of the guard bend inwards, locking your leg into the engine. I have seen this happening and trust me when I say that it isn't a pretty sight.

It's perhaps a better idea to change to something straighter, like the Classic in the pic just after your pics.

justroyal, I may not agree to your point since I havent see any such thing happening so far. But, if you would have seen the one I had come through with one of the Biker, you would never miss this type of crash guard.
It works wonders.. the biker and the bike got a clean escape after the brakes got jammed suddenly on a newly laid tar road. Bike was dragged on its side atleast 10 feet. Not a single scratch on the bike except the headlight rim which costed 100 bucks. Biker escaped with few scratches here and there.

Thanks JustROYal.

i have also read about the risks involved withthese crash-guards.. just that i like them over the straight ones.. I have had a major accident (head-on), where the crashguard snipped in to three piece. Thankfully it did not bend in-wards.

will surely consider switching on to the straighter ones, as they say - "precaution is better than cure".

Hi wmanu - I am from Bangalore and a fairly new C5 owner (got it in March). If I am not wrong, i have seen your machine at the Mission road HSR service centre and I must say it looks fabulous!

Can you tell me where you get the mods done on your C5? Also, do these mods void the RE Warranty?

Thanks!

Is the pillion comfortable with this setup? Seems very very convinient to carry stuff and one of the best setups I've seen. Any more details from where one can source this and how much?

Also, doesn't it get too heavy at the back?

Gordon, got this custom made. The quality of iron used is much superior than what you get for Rs.700 - Rs.1000 panniers. This pannier alone would be around 1500 rups.

The pannier and boxes are powder coated rather than painted, so finishing is much superior. Boxes are fixed to the panniers, to you can easily put traditional locks on the box and forget about it.

The cans are 10 lt each, panniers have been customized for the same.

The total setup costed my around 3k I guess.

Pillion would be quite conformable, but should be a lean and flexible person.

well, the tank is 22lt, I am super heavy myself. And only plan to fill the cans with 5-7 lts of fuel. So that should balance the bike out.
